From the road

We went to the National Zoo in Washington, DC yesterday - it was a beautifully sunny day and we had a great time! I'll share more photos with you when I get back, but here is one of my favorites.

Isn't this Sumatran tiger magnificent?


  1. He IS magnificent, Silke, and you've captured a beautiful shot of him. There are so many beautiful animals in the world that we just don't see very often. Hard to appreciate them when they are living in the wild. Thankfully someone thought up the Zoo concept. I look forward to seeing more photos from your trip to the Zoo. (:

  2. What a wonderful photo - one would never have guessed it was in a zoo.

  3. Wow Silke!! What a great close up shot!! Can't wait to see more! Take lots of pics of those cherry blossoms!! :)

  4. Du must eine wirklich tolle Kamera haben,
    der Tiger ist so deutlich und klar zu ´sehen, als hätte er unmittelbar vor dir gestanden

  5. Sehr beeindruckend. Ein schönes Tier.

  6. I just thought to check your blog. Glad you are enjoying your time away. That tiger is spectacular! What a great photo! I can't believe you caught him with his tongue sticking out.

    All is well here. Sunny & 79 degrees today! ☺
